9780072121247: C: The Complete Reference (Osborne Complete Reference Series)

Another gem from Herb Schildt--best-selling programming author with more than 2.5 million books sold! C: The Complete Reference, Fourth Edition gives you full details on C99, the New ANSI/ISO Standard for C. You'll get in-depth coverage of the C language and function libraries as well as all the newest C features, including restricted pointers, inline functions, variable-length arrays, and complex math. This jam-packed resource includes hundreds of examples and sample applications.

Review:

C has been justly popular since Kernighan and Ritchie developed it, and continues to be so despite the increasing popularity of its offspring, C++ and Java. The release of the ANSI/ISO C99 standard, replacing C89, triggered the fourth version of Schild's massively successful--and massive--C reference. Naturally, though, C99 is only the reason for a new edition, not the whole content. What you get is a six-part book which starts with C's foundations, details the C99 additions, discusses the C libraries, introduces useful algorithms, looks at C environments and--best of all--creates a small C interpreter.

In practice, much of the information in the book remains identical to previous versions and, as at the time of writing, few compilers support all of C99, it might seem unnecessary to buy the new edition at all. However, complete means what it says. Schild keeps all the C89 material (the basis of C++ after all), adds the C99 material and also updates the book to reflect changes in programming practice and style. The C99 additions discussed include new keywords, variable length arrays, complex maths support, the long, long int (64-bit integers), more flexible array structure members and more, all of which are demonstrated in code fragments.

C has the advantage of being a relatively simple, compact language and Schild knows it inside out. If you plan to be a C programmer this is probably the only book on the C language you'll need. --Steve Patient

From the Back Cover:

The Ultimate Resource on C—Thoroughly Updated for the New C Standard.

A new ANSI/ISO standard for C, called C99, has been recently adopted and Herb Schildt, the world's leading programming author, has updated and expanded his best-selling reference on C to cover it. Whether you are a beginning C programmer or a seasoned pro, the answers to all your C questions can be found in this one-stop resource. In this authoritative guide, Schildt details the C language, its libraries, and applications, providing insider tips, hundreds of examples, and expertly crafted explanations. As a special bonus, the book concludes by developing a C interpreter, which you can use as-is or expand on your own! And just as you'd expect, everything is presented in the clear, concise, uncompromising style that has made Herb the choice of millions.

Inside you'll find:

  • Comprehensive coverage of the C language, including both C89 (the original version of C) and the new features added by C99
  • Detailed explanations of each keyword, data type, and operator
  • In-depth discussions of pointers, disk I/O, and dynamic allocation
  • Complete descriptions of the entire C function library
  • Descriptions of the new features added by C99, such as restricted pointers, Boolean and complex data types, the inline keyword, variable-length arrays, and the long data types
  • Real-world algorithms and applications, such as stacks, queues, trees, sparse arrays, and sorting. You'll even learn about Al-based searching techniques
  • Tips on working efficiently in the C programming environment
  • Advice on porting and debugging
  • Complete source code for a C interpreter that you can use as-is enhance to fit your needs
